Dictionary incomplete

The dictionary is somewhat useless. The game doesn't recognize many words. Tried to play INUIT the other day but it wouldn't let me. Also, does not accept any modern and accepted slang.

Words By Post

Way better if playing 15-20 games at once as everyone on different time zones from all over the world. It is too slow waiting for one person to move if they have up to 5 days to make their move. Very fun and challenging!

No Notifications NO Support

This app is the standard Scrabble game. The interface is simple and nice, but the problem is that when my phone which has the Android version of this app, tells me it is my turn, I have to close the Windows 8 App and re-open it to see that it is my turn. Even after a couple hours when it decides to let it be my turn, I get no notifications of any kind. No ding, pop up, nothing. I sent two emails for support. I didn't even get an automated e-mailer message saying that the got my message. Grr

Great app with cross platform support!

Friends using other platforms like android or iOS, no problem. Fun to play on my new surface and phone and the games all stay in synch.

Free $ or Ad-Free : Awesome App!

A well thought out App, Words by Post for Windows 8 and Windows Phone plays great - and because it's cross platform (iOS & Android) you can play with anyone. Standard dictionary, good game board; this App plays well and is stable on all platforms. The UI is clean & obvious with minimal "distractions".

Let's me(Windows Phone) play with my wife (iPhone), and now I can use it on my Windows 8 laptop as well. Great game, thanks.

This app takes Words With Friends outside and beats it to a living pulp.

Best word game available

I play this game on my W7Phone and IPad also. There are a lot of other games like this available, but none has the features that this game does
